Introducing Susanna Harwood Rubin. Rubin's work has always taken my breath away. Meticulous, elegant, and serene while brimming with energy. These are the perfect antidote to all the madness in the air these past weeks… breathe!

More below... plus works in cut felt, graphite and pure brilliant color -- in more lush detail -- in the slide show...

Hummingbird Star #2, Felt, 2006. 2'5" x 2'5"

Her graphite works have this feeling of spaciousness and light. They are made ever so carefully, fine lines of graphite, one beside the other, with a little space between. Look closely and you will see the artist repeats a few favored images (such as the dear hummingbird ... and yoginis will notice some familiar postures) in surprising ways that sometimes conceal and often transform them.

Mandala #4, Graphite on paper, 2008. 30" x 30"
